The latest development also raised doubts whether he was punished for speaking against BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in the past. Moreover, Sinha had earlier also praised Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, which did not go well with the party high command.

Former MLA from Bakhtiyarpur Binod Yadav and general secretary of state BJP Scheduled Caste cell Sanjay Ram said a large number of people were questioning them about the absence of Sinha's name from the list that released on Thursday.

They said the party would suffer if Sinha, popularly known as ‘Bihari Babu’, was not re-nominated from the Patna Saheb seat in the capital.
All India Kayastha Mahasabha has also come out in support of Sinha and expressed anger against the BJP’s decision to put his candidature from Patna Saheb seat ‘on hold.’
“We feel the Kayastha samaj has been insulted by this...if Shatrughan Sinha is not made nominee from Patna Saheb seat we will come on the streets to protest the decision,” said All India Kayastha Mahasabha president Rajiv Ranjan Sinha.
The cinestar hails from Kayastha caste whose number dominates the Patna Saheb Parliamentary constituency.
